Bryan Marchment, who played 17 NHL seasons with nine teams, died Wednesday. He was 53.
Known as a physical, hard-nosed defenseman, Marchment had 182 points (40 goals, 142 assists) and had 2,307 penalty minutes in 926 NHL games with the Winnipeg Jets, Chicago Blackhawks, Hartford Whalers, Edmonton Oilers, Tampa Bay Lightning, San Jose Sharks, Colorado Avalanche, Toronto Maple Leafs and Calgary Flames.
"The National Hockey League mourns the passing of San Jose Sharks scout and former NHL player Bryan Marchment," the NHL said in a statement. "Our deepest condolences go out to his family, the Sharks organization and Bryan's many friends, former teammates and fans."
Marchment retired in 2006 and joined the Sharks front office in August 2007, working with the scouting and player development departments.
His son, Mason Marchment, is a forward with the Florida Panthers.
